Local Dentist Receives Fellowship from the International Congress of Oral Implantology

Dr. Richard Hayden of Salt Spring Island BC is pleased to add this area of competency to his practice at the Island Dental Centre for the convenience of his clients on Salt Spring Island, Vancouver Island and surrounding areas.

Aug. 28, 2009 - PRLog -- Salt Spring Island Dentist Dr. Richard Hayden was recently honoured for his achievements in dentistry when he was awarded a Fellowship in the International Congress of Oral Implantology (ICOI). With this distinction, awarded during a ceremony held August 21st in Vancouver, Dr. Hayden joins dentists from around the world who have received recognition for their achievement in the field of implantology.

The certification follows over 200 hours of classroom time, studies in Vancouver and two years of performing successful dental implants and restorations.

A dental implant is a man-made tooth that occupies the position that a natural tooth (or teeth) once held. The first and most obvious benefit of an implant is the enhanced ability to chew and enjoy food. Implants also eliminate the inconvenience associated with removable teeth.

Dr. Hayden explains that his motivation for working towards this and other advanced dentistry accreditation is:  “so that my Salt Spring Island patients don’t have to leave the island for certain types of treatments.” In fact the reverse of this has occurred as Dr. Hayden’s Island Dental Centre receives patients from surrounding areas who want to benefit from some of the advanced procedures Dr. Hayden offers.

Dr. Hayden also made news last year when he was the first dentist in Canada licensed to use laser technology (LANAP) in the treatment of gum disease, a major advancement in procedural protocol for patients suffering from periodontal disease. ( See http://www.millenniumdental.com/release6.html )

A high level of motivation to reach new goals in his professional life is mirrored by Dr. Hayden’s chosen “spare time” hobbies. Salt Springers might see him running, cycling or swimming about the island as he trains for marathons and triathlons.

“ I am proud to have achieved this certification and am happy to be able to bring this expertise to my practice for the benefit of my patients,” says Dr. Hayden.

The ICOI represents implantologists throughout the world and is recognized as the largest organization representing this discipline in dentistry. The ICOI has risen to the forefront of the dental profession and has built a solid reputation as a premier dental organization committed to assisting dentists in remaining current with new research, technologies and products through a lifelong learning in this exclusive field.
